Naperville Driver Accused of DUI at 142 mph Pleads Guilty

Dean A. Suominen, 37, of Shorewood avoided jail time after pleading guilty Tuesday in DuPage County to misdemeanor DUI and reckless driving after officials allege he was traveling at more than 140 mph at the time of the incident. Suominen was charged on January 10, 2012 after his Dodge Charger veered off the road, went airborne, and struck a billboard in Naperville. His BAC was reportedly at .20, more than two times the legal limit. According to prosecutors, a data recorder in the vehicle registered a speed of 142 mph just before the car left the road. Suominen was sentenced to two years of court supervision, 100 hours of community service, over $3,000 in fines, court costs and restitution. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dismissed citations for driving too fast for conditions, improper lane usage, and speeding. He had no prior criminal history or alcohol-related driving offenses on his record according to his criminal defense attorney.
